At the Academy in Ghent we were supposed to draw. Luckily drawing could be anything. I liked to use and try a lot of different paints. This series was heavily inspired by Richter, again. I did not see any of his work in reality at that time. Purely based on what I could see in catalogues in the library of the academy in Ghent. And don’t forget Rothko. Another painter I only discovered while hanging around at the academy.
